Parlour Roller live in studio: 45 min.Concert calendar: 10 min.
Radio debut of a new folk duo! Parlour Roller is two ex-pat Ontarians (Ontarioans?) Skye Wallace and Ben Doerksen, now resident in East Van. Lovely to meet them and learn about their upcoming BC pre-Xmas tour. You can find them on Twitter and FB. (don't forget the 'Canadian' spelling of Parlour!)
Earlier in the show I pulled out some lovely 80's vinyl by South African bands in honour of the late Nelson Mandela. I hope he's smiling down on us.
Congrats to Vancouver Community College music grad Jennifer Gasoi for her Grammy nom! We ended the show with a cut from her nominated album (children's music category).
Next week will be the last live Folk Oasis of 2013. Seasonal treats for all! Requests are welcome..nothing schmaltzy, please!
Thanks, as always, for listening.

stay warm,
